I think Scout has a definite sense that it is wrong to play games at the expense of Boo. Initially she is reluctant to try to pass Boo a message using a fishing line. She feels pressured by Jem and Dill despite her nagging conscience. When Atticus catches them, he put into words what Scout has been feeling all along. He tells her that Boo has a right to his privacy and the right not to be entertainment for children.
