I went out and purchased 8 packs of Goody headbands* for about the same price as one actual Survivor buff.
*actual colours used are different than those illustrated.
This gave me "buffs" for four tribes (blue, green, pink, grey) and two other colours (cyan, purple) for if and when we realign the tribes into two teams. To prep for next week I'll need materials for the challenges, team immunity idols, and maybe a hidden immunity idol...or two.
This was my lesson plan to kick things off:
