One other consideration is who the accounts belong to legally. Also, depending upon your state of legal residence, even a guardian account requires transfer of assets to the grandchild at age 25.

The Fool has a set of articles for Investing for Kids and I would also encourage you to drop by Fairmark to read their section on the same topic. www.fairmark.com

good luck and those are some lucky grandkids!
