These little guys right here are the most important things to me! It is NEVER too early to start thinking about our childrens education. I know for us we want our kids to go to school and putting money away now is our best bet. If we want to someday be able to afford to put all three boys through college this is where we need to start. If you don’t know what to get your kids or grandkids this holiday season, think of their future and helping them put money away for for their education! *This is a sponsored post.

Giving the Gift of College to Children and Grandchildren
The holidays can be stressful as parents and grandparents search for gifts children will cherish. One option is to support children’s wishes for what they want to be when they grow up. You can do this through a tax deductible contribution to an AZ 529 account, (www.az529.gov) Arizona’s Family College Savings Program through the Arizona Commission for Postsecondary Education. Contributions from parents, relatives and family friends provide gifts with long-term meaning for their littlest loved ones.
If giving children a card that says, “I helped you save for college,” seems less than magical, AZ 529 has suggestions that will delight youngsters while strengthening their futures.
• Career Costumes: Give a chef’s hat, astronaut costume, or other career dress-up option with a note saying you believe they can be whatever they wish, and you’ve given $XX to help them achieve their dreams.
• Career Exploration: Give an interesting book about a future career with a bookmark note sharing your 529 contribution.
• Split it 50/50: Instead of buying a large gift, take half the funds and contribute to their 529, while using the other half to buy a less expensive gift.
• Experience The Future: Take children to a museum or activity that helps them better understand a future career, then login online together to see the funds deposited into their 529 account.
