Hokkaido self drive from 7 - 14 June

I am thinking of the following itinery and could any hokkaido expert advice if it is OK and answer some of my questions?

Day 1 Chitose airport arrival morning - pick up car - drive to Lake Toya stay 2N

Day 2 Noribetsu Edo wonderland and Bear park or Marine park - stay in Lake Toya

Day 3 Lake Toya - drive to Asahikawa stay 2N

Day 4 Kamiyubetsu (tulip), Takinoue (pink moss), Daisetsuzan - stay in Asahikawa

Day 5 Asahikawa - drive to Furano - Tomita farm stay in Furano 2N

Day 6 Furano - Biei - patch work and panoramic drive - Hot air balloon - stay in Furano

Day 7 Furano to Sapporo - chocolate factory - stay in Sapporo 1 N

Day 8 Depart early to Chitose

Any advice on the driving route?

Is it tiring to drive straight from the airport to Lake Toya?

Should we return the car at Sapporo or can we drive directly to the airport from Sapporo? Our flight is at 10am on a friday morning.

Also we'll be traveling with another family, total 8 of us (4 adults and 4 kids) and thinking of renting a van. Is it better?

Any other child friendly activities to recommend?

Thank you!!
