About Fern Family

Fern Family strives to help families (like our own!) that struggle to organize their day to day activities. Our goal is to create systems and visual calendars that help our family and others feel less overwhelmed by the chaos of life. 

Our first calendar was created years ago to help our son on the Autism Spectrum when we couldn’t find a visual calendar that was functional AND pretty. He was nonverbal for years and we needed a system he could physically see and use in our home to communicate with. He did later learn to communicate but we also had more kids and were being bombarded with the same questions over and over again. When are we going to the movie? When is my party? What days do I go to school? When will I see grandma? 

We solved a lot of these frustrations by building up our own tried and true calendar system. Our family is anxious by nature so being able to quickly glance at a calendar on the wall has been a game changer for not only our son on the Autism Spectrum but each family member. We also love the way it looks and matches our home. 

Fern Family took these solutions and created a calendar for your family to utilize as well. Our dream is to give your family a stunning visual calendar that will help with anxiety and limit the constant questions. We hope this helps your family as much as it has ours. ♥️

We have 3 different systems:

  • Calendar Clings

    Calendar Clings are reusable stickers made with a static cling material that can be used on a smooth surface (acrylic, whiteboard, plastic, glass, etc.). Each activity icon was custom drawn out in Illustrator by our designer, Lisa, to be printed on this reusable material for you. These clings can be used with monthly, or weekly, calendars so kids and parents can quickly see the activities. The reusable material gives you the ability to move and reuse each sticker over and over again. Our Calendar Clings can be paired with a smooth surface calendar purchased elsewhere or by purchasing our digital blank calendar. The digital calendar can be printed at your local printer and put in a picture frame. The clings can be placed on the smooth glass surface of the picture frame.

  • Calendar Stickers

    Calendar stickers can only be used once and are printed on matte white round labels. Each activity icon was custom drawn out in Illustrator by our designer, Lisa, to be printed on this one time use material for you. These stickers are great to be used with paper monthly or weekly calendars that are recycled after use. Our Calendar Stickers can be paired with paper calendars purchased elsewhere or by purchasing our digital blank calendar. The digital calendar can be printed at your local printer and hung however you choose. The Calendar Stickers can be placed where needed on your calendar.
