The one and only reason I can think of is that Bran is communicating through them. If he can already shout a few names, what could he do when his powers grow? Do you think he could actually speak via a crow?
What do you think?

I think they are going to take Theon in front of the weirwoods because Stannis wants to appease the northmen. Then half the raven in the North are going to land in that weirwood and start yelling Theon. I don't know what will happen afterwards but I hope he dies, because he helped destroy Winterfell and all its people.

We'll see him only through his actions with the trees and crossovers.

So I think Bran wants everyone to come to the weirwood so that he can magically enlighten them to the truth of some things, like the fact that he is alive and Theon is not a kinslayer, and to unite them in their greater purpose. Wouldn't it be wonderful if upon their return from this experience, Davos is waiting at the Tower with Rickon and Shaggy?

The Others = a Winter that never ends and the death of living things.
Bran/BR and the Children are trying to keep that from happening.
What the Others are or were we have no way of knowing yet but the physical description we got in AGOT is tall, thin & pale. The description we have of the Children is that they are small even when full grown.
Bran is working to save humanity. Does he need Theon alive to do this? Maybe.
What we know is this. Sooner or later, Stannis is going to kill Theon for his "crimes" against the North. Asha has asked him to honor the North for whom he is enacting the justice by beheading Theon in front of a Weirtree. The crows/Bran/BR seem to what the same thing too.
So lets say it's a given and Stannis will take Theon and a lot of northmen, as witnesses, over to the inlet with the Weirtree. Then what?
Either Bran will some how "save" Theon from his fate ( maybe by talking to everyone thru the tree) or Bran/BR want Theon's kingsblood for themselves.
Even if Bran does want the blood to increase his powers that does not make him bad or evil or set him on the road to being the Great Other.

also if stannis takes alot of northmen to the tree then, so what? he lops off theons head and thats the end of it. Bran or bloodraven will have theons blood in the roots and they will know all he knows.
if anything this will boost stannis rep with the northmen.
they wont know a thing about bran and bloodraven using the blood. because there will be no physical manifeistation, it will just be the blood seeping down to the roots.
this blood may allow bran for a short time to maybe speak through the trees. thats a shot in the dark there.
He cant stop or change anything he doesnt have the powers "yet" or at all. he urges them to the tree so the blood will be of use to him.
Why would he save theon, theon betrayed his family, maybe he was kind to the small folk but what would NED do.
Ned would kill him.
Bran uderstands this and will allow the death of turncloak.

we all have our theories dont try and state facts.
I have seen the boards proposing that the Children= Others I think your sentence says all it but I have no problem with your theories or anyone elses.
It's a free make believe world we're living in here and all the "crackpottery" just makes it more interesting. That being said, you have to base your speculations on something - preferably something the author has actually written or eluded to.
Personally, I think the theory of the "Great Spagehetti Monster in the Sky" more plausible ( at this point) that Bran or the Children being the "Others"
