We did this last year. No quarantine, but we didn't have any transportation.

I rented a video every day of Chol Hamoed, and/or a new story tape. We had our new Pesach toys, had them play in the backyard. It was fine.

If it's nice weather, I have no issue going to a state park. We hike, eat, take along bikes for the older ones. I've been wanting to check out Minnewaska.

do your own escape room.
I just was catching up on reading and the binah's chanukah issue had a diy escape room

Minnewaska is gorgeous but you end up near people a lot. Everything is a few mountain trails near water. Not really any wide open spaces. This is from what I recall, anyone else who was there feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

I was thinking to do a canvas paint session. Find a tutorial and buy paint supplies
You can also decorate mugs or bowls with oils sharpies. And then have new pesach dishes.

It will be very hard

That is such a great idea! Stealing and accepting any details/specifics!

You can also buy an escape-room-in-a-box. They're not terribly expensive and can be a lot of fun at home!

AYLOR but these activities can be halachically questionable on chol hamoed, especially with participants over bar/bat mitzvah.

Painting pottery we asked in the past was told it was fine. I guess canvas painting id also ask.

This is a great idea. I never knew it was an option.
