Procedural Writing ideas

I'm drawing a blank for more ideas for procedural writing. We have already made paper. I usually do this earlier in the year so we write about hot chocolate. I was trying to come up with another low-cost recipe. I have several who don't celebrate Easter so anything with dyeing eggs is out. The best I've got so far is root beer floats but that seems too easy -- scoop ice cream, add root beer. The teacher across the hall (different grade) has already done blowing bubbles like the example we've all seen on pinterest.

Make "slime" --multi-step, but easy and fairly cheap to make
How to Blow Bubbles (chewing gum)
Oobleck
Elephant Toothpaste -- all these ideas can be tied in nicely with science

Seasonal Idea

If you're looking for a seasonal idea, how about "How to Catch a Leprechaun?"

Consider having your students come up with their own ideas. My firsties loved writing their own how to books. There was a wide variety of topics: How to Take Care of a Baby Sister, How to Play Just Dance, How to Make Banana Muffins, How to Walk a Dog...

A couple of years ago, my students made banana splits with a partner, and then wrote How to Make a Banana Split. They were cute and the splits were super yummy

I want to have the kids do a chore for homework--making a bed, helping load the dishwasher, sweeping the floor, whatever. Then write at school about how to do the chore, step by step.

Brushing teeth, making bed, getting ready for school in the morning, setting the table, getting dressed, making a snowman, do a craft then write the instructions, procedure for fire drill, lockdown drill, choosing and signing out a book at library...

Google it...easy and inexpensive to make. The kids loved it. We hooked with our social studies unit on economy with consumers and producers with Gail Gibbons book, Ice Cream The Full Scoop.
