ADULT RECOMMENDED PREPARATION:
Unlike many crafts geared towards kids, this one takes a significant amount of time to complete. For this project, it's helpful to do all of the cutting and folding before sitting the kids down to begin a project. 

Using the scissors, cut out the circle from the center of the paper plate so that only the outer rim of the paper plate remains. Set aside.

With a paper trimmer, cut the construction paper into 1” strips. The construction paper should be horizontal in the trimmer during this step.

Fold the green construction paper strips in half.

Place one strip onto the paper plate ring, inserting the ring into the folded edge of the strip.
Secure the green strip with two Craft Dots—one in the center of the strip and one in between the loose ends.
