    Aloha Dale,
    Are you using Practical Life at home or at school? What kind of practical life (age range/dressing?cooking?) I will give a more specific idea if you narrow it down. Also, see the 'Toddler at Home' post.
    Btw, what is "Wett"?

    I have bubble making, pouring, scrubbing a dinosaur, washing clothes, and scooping those plastic ice balls from a bowl of water.

    Aha! Practical Life that involves water...
    this is what we have out now:
    pouring (from one container to the other, same size)
    pouring into different sized containers
    washing hands
    washing your face
    washing a table
    scrubbing a mat
    watering plants
    flower arranging
    land and water forms
    all the cooking materials (juicing, pretzels, granola, apple pie, and banana bread) and eating a snack involves washing dishes
    washing nails/cleaning nails
    washing cloths
    washing windows
    scrubbing the sink
    also art activities that involve water are painting and colored chalk
    making carbonation (vinegar and baking soda)

    I do work in an All-day class so we have a bit more practical life materials available than you might have for a half day program.

    Other ideas:
    brushing teeth
    cleaning eyeglasses
