CRL - Community Rail Lancashire

Creative At Home With CRL

Creative at Home is a project being run by Community Rail Lancashire during the current Covid-19 pandemic and is a repository of animations made using the on-line programme Doodly.

Katie, one of CRL’s officers has been busy whilst working from home and has created the animations below, that have suggestions of things to do with children who are stuck at home and unable to attend school in these difficult times. The animations have been uploaded to YouTube and can be viewed by clicking the appropriate link. There will be more added as they are made – so keep you eye on this page for more ideas!
