der Enkel / die Enkelin


Explanation:
Everyday German simply uses the word "Enkel". A grandparent would say, "ich habe [number] Enkel".

In reference to a grandson, the grandparent would say "mein Enkel", and the reference to a granddaughter would be "meine Enkelin".

Enkelsohn and Enkeltochter are correct as well, but are a bit more formal and sound somewhat stilted.
