Why do the children make Boo's story into a game?
4 Answers | Add Yours
The children have gotten bored with acting out books and movies, so they decide to act out the story of Boo's life, complete with howling under the porch and stabbing Mr. Radley in the leg with scissors.
This shows just how much of an object of entertainment and wonder Boo has become. The kids have put him on the same level as books and movies--he's no longer (or he never was) a person with problems and feelings; he's simply two-dimensional and an object for fun.
Well, they are children. They make up the boo radley game because they are bored. Boo remains a mystery in Chapter 4. The children find him interesting because they themselves haven't seen him. They have a wild imagination! They try to act this all out stabbing Mr. Radley in the leg with scissors.
Children are innocent and have a wild imagination and thus they develop their imagination as there is no definite boundary as to who Boo is like.
