10 Best Wichita Shops for Fun Easter Basket Fillers

It’s time to start planning your Easter baskets! And our favorite Wichita shops always deliver. Of course, candy is a classic Easter basket filler – check out our favorite candy stores in Wichita here!

Love of Character always stocks their shelves with the cutest Easter decor, treats, toys, basket, and more! Located in College Hill (but soon moving to Rock & Central), they’re ready to help you put together a basket to remember!

Imagine That Toys is located in north Wichita and has tons of engaging, brain-building games, crafts, and projects for kids.

Let’s Go Build is Wichita’s first (and only!) LEGO store – have you been yet?

And of course we can’t forget the Explore Store at Exploration Place. Did you know you can shop there without a membership or admission fee?

Every Easter basket needs some yummy treats, and Nifty Nut House is our favorite sweet shop. Grab some salty, savory goodness to balance out your basket at The Popcorner East and West!

We’re all looking for activities to keep our kids busy, and Evans Ceramic Supply has a HUGE selection of ceramics for kids to choose from. Paint them or make it a family activity, and then next year when you get out your Easter decor, you can talk about how different things are from this year! 

Another way to entertain the kids and to enjoy a yummy treat are the cookie decorating kits from Connie’s Cookies (egg or circle shaped cookies) or Drury Lane Bakery and Cafe (unicorns and mermaids or trains and planes!) Both places are also offering take and bake cookie dough. Connie’s Cookies has a drive thru and Drury Lane is doing call ahead with curbside pickup. 

I always try to support local but have grabbed a few items from chains like Target and Michael’s too since they’re offering curbside carryout. Target has these awesome bubble guns for $3 and chalk stencils for all of the driveway masterpieces in your future, and you can grab some plastic eggs if you seem to have misplaced yours from last year. Michael’s has dot markers – bonus points that you can use them with schooling activities from Pinterest – and all kinds of activity kits

We may not have any kid-free errand running time, open stores, or even Amazon prime shipping for Easter basket goodies this year, but we will still find a way to make a holiday magical in the midst of crazy – we’re moms, we’ve got this.
