Depending on how you feel about the company, you might want to buy each of your grandchildren, X number of shares in Disney (for example) and get the certificates themselves to give to the kids. Many companies have interesting certificates but Disney's would be a little more on their level. They then could frame (?) the certificate and hopefully ask what the whole idea of stocks and certificates, etc are all about. Seems to me to be a great opening move to get them interested.

Have a great day!
