TULSA, Oklahoma -- Although many kids may want to play on their Wii, or sit in front of the television on spring break, it's always a good idea to keep them active.

918moms.com reporter Carrie Netherton has some ideas to get them moving.

Parents, if you're tired of your kids sitting in front of the TV, why not come to Andy B's, where they can get a little bowling in?

Kids will have plenty of opportunity to bowl their own strike; there's 40 lanes of bowling at Andy B's, including bumpers for the tiniest bowlers.

Visitors can also hop into a Go Kart and race around the 16,000 square foot track, which will be open longer during spring break. The track usually doesn't open until 4 p.m., but it will stay open the entire day during spring break.

The hours at Andy's are 9 a.m. - midnight Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. - 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday.

From bowling and racing to baseball.

The All-Star Sports Complex is holding several baseball mini-camps this week.

Kids are brushing up on the basics: fielding, hitting and throwing during the "skills" camp, which continues through Wednesday. The price is $179.

The hitting camp is on Thursday. Friday is one of the more popular camps: pitching. Both the hitting and pitching camps cost $69.

"Get them out of the house so they're not so bored, getting stir crazy," Brian Hailey, with All-Star Sports Complex, said. "Spring baseball is right around the corner so it's a good time to just get them out and get active."

There are still spots available for all three camps.
