The children are trying to lure out Boo Radley. Their idea is to make a trail of lemon drops from his back door to their front yard and he would follow them like an ant.

The children's curiosity about the mysterious Boo Radley (Arthur) is great and the trail idea reminds me of E.T., if you have ever seen that movie. Eliot leaves Reese's pieces in hopes of attracting E.T. The children plan the lemon drop trail in hopes of luring Boo Radley out of his house.
