Before you try to add it to the menu:

You should probably install the version of Blender that is available via the Software Centre:

Open the Software Center from the Applications menu and type "blender" into the search box in the upper right corner.

Or, alternatively, Click this Link to install blender.

Blender will now be installed and in your menu.

Still, to add an application to the Menu right click on the main menu and select "Edit Menus": Main Menu

From there, select "New item":

The command to start blender should be blender, choose your name and icon and put it wherever you want.
