    Any good idea’s?


    Beis Medrash.

    Merely a suggestion.


    What about the Kitchen?

    Ther is hardly time for anything else,,,,,YT is in the middle of the week,,,,


    Can I assume you’re in the tri-state area? If so, Hamodia will be having a special insert for just that.

    And something to bear in mind – is money an object? The activities – movies for the ladies, events, fundraisers, etc. – are all pricey, so you may have to triage.

    And remind your kids that you are not their entertainment directors. You can offer, say one big event, a simchas beis hashoeiva, an inexpensive trip such as park, or some museums (don’t know what kind of parks are in your area without major gas and toll investments). Then if they’re bored they can always amuse themselves by peeling potatoes, sorting laundry and putting away that which didn’t get put away, etc.

    anon for this

    Are you interested in cheaper outings? If so, good choices for younger children might be trips to the library, playground (if the weather is nice, bring along snacks & have a picnic), or to pick out one or two items at the dollar store.


    We enjoy hiking. There is an interesting variant of hiking — like hiking combined with a a treasure hunt — called letterboxing. We haven’t tried it (yet), but it sounds like a fun and inexpensive activity for the whole family. There was an article about letterboxing last year in WhereWhatWhen, a frum magazine in Baltimore. Here’s the link:


    I agree with Joseph:

    However not just any Bais Medrash

    make it “Bais Medrash Govoha!”

    In “Ihr Hakodesh Lakewood”.

    It’s like Disney Land, but closer.

    Unless you live Lkwd,

    then try Chaim Berlin, Torah Vodaas, or Mir,

    in “Ihr Hachessed Brooklyn”.

    The Beis Medrash is a wonderful Chol HaMoed destination. But unfortunately I’m not allowed to bring my little kids there & I doubt they’d appreciate it anyways. I’m thinking the OP is looking for ideas on outings suitable for young children, and answered appropriately.


    Shopping always works for me!


    Shopping may not be permitted on Chol HaMoed. There are many factors to be considered. Consult with your Posek.

    Pashuteh Yid

    Why don’t all 3,000 of us YW readers all pay a surprise visit to Joseph and Jent.


    Pashuteh, We can meet at YWN World Headquarters and then walk a few blocks to the Beis Hamedrash and learn a few blat Gemorah!
