There are a number of different drills which you can use to improve your spin bowling. However bowling at a target is probably one of the best: mark out an area on the wicket which represents a good line and length using chalk, paint or markers. Aim to bowl every bowl in to this area and turn the ball so that it hits the stumps. You can adjust this zone depending on the type of spin you are bowling, the stance of the batter (left or right handed) and the pitch conditions. You can also incorporate obstacles for bowlers to bowl over, to practice varying flight and pitching it in same spot.
