This may not really answer your question, but when were the bonds issued?

The reason I ask is that some continue to pay even after maturity and, depending on the rate and any potential upcoming qualifying education cost, you may want to hold on them a bit longer.

Here is a good link to some additional information: https://www.treasurydirect.gov/indiv/research/indepth/ebonds/res_e_bonds_eeratesandterms_eebondsissued051997_042005.htm 

Otherwise, in my opinion, if you are no longer earning anything off of these, take the funds and put them to work for you.
