Watch waves crash during storms

Go to the beach during a storm and see how different it can be. Find a parking spot overlooking the beach (so you can stay out of the rain and safe from lightning strikes) and watch the waves crash, and count the time between the lightning strike and accompanying thunderclap to see how far away the lightning is. Ask your child to describe what they see and hear.
