Hi! My son's 3rd birthday party is this Saturday and we are grilling hot dogs, hamburgers and chicken. I ususally do sides such as baked beans, potato salad, pasta salad & deviled eggs. Those are still great, but looking for something DIFFERENT, FUN, EASY & KID-FRIENDLY (Adult too)!!! Please give me ANY and ALL ideas!!! Thanks Mamas!!!

  • I can think of maybe chips and salsa, a veggie plate w/dip, you can also try doing little tortilla rolls with cheese in them, finger foods!
