my 3 yr old is crazy about glittery foam stickers right now and likes to practice cutting and do anything with washable markers

Glitter ornaments!!! Buy some clear plastic ornaments (got mine at Wal-Mart), dump some pledge floor stuff (with future shine!!!) in it, shake all around then dump out (back into bottle). Dump in some fine glitter, shake around, dump extra out, put top back on and decorate, if you want.

Salt dough ornaments? I did them with my daughter and they were a lot of fun. She's almost 2. I even made an extra one for her to pain and decorate (I painted the ones for gifting lol). She had a blast!

Pinterest is great, but I created my own pinterest board to follow all of the amazing websites and blogs - I am going to be a SAHM for my toddler at the beginning of the year.  Some of my favorite sites for kiddos are: the imagination tree, the artful parent, tinkerlabs and life with moore babies.  There is also mummy musings and mayhem (although she is in Australia so they are dong all these fun outdoor crafts right now and all I can do is save the ideas for later!)  And everytime I read one of their sites, they link to a bunch of others.  You can google them and find them pretty easily.  I end up spending hours after my DD has gone to bed looking at their postings and then clicking on all the lnks to other amazing blogs and sites for more ideas.  Plus, I love they use a lot of supplies that are inexpensive or free - old toilet paper rolls, paint out of cornstarch and water, etc.  I love the idea of sensory boxes - the imagination tree has tons of ideas.  My DD new favorite toy is a tupperware box of beans that and some old containers - she loves to pour, dig, whatever.  I put a lot on my board - under MamaBunny3, the board you want is Craft and Kid Art Ideas.
