This is a followup to some previous questions I had in regards to handling some money my minor child earned in 2010.http://boards.fool.com/infant-income-followup-28767104.aspx?...To recap, child is 1 years old, earned $300 in 2010 (modeling). Currently in a savings account at a local bank earning practically nothing.I had previously got some recommendations to open a Roth IRA for him, which I tried to do. Unfortunately with only $300 it didn't meet the account minimums of anywhere I tried.So I am trying to figure out what is the best thing to do with it now.Do I just leave it in the savings account and let him spend it at some point when he gets older? Is there another way to get it invested for some long term growth?Can I combine it with some money of my own and invest it that way for him?My goals are to get some growth. I also would like to avoid having to deal with filing taxes for him.Any help would be appreciated.Mosquito
