  • I haven't actually explained what it is, I just tell my son that it is part of a storm. He was terrified of thunder and lightning until we sat at the screen door and watched one night :)

  • I've heard about "The angels bowling" too.... but for my kids (10, 6, and 4) I give them a more scientific explanation of lightning and thunder.

  • I too teach my gs the truth of thunder and lightening. I have once told him that it was the Angels, but now that he is 8 he knows the science part of it...oh he also believes that the God "Thor" has something to do with that too... (he picked that up on his own)
