1. Put a few drops of colored ink on your paper, the lighter the colors the better. Moving the paper around while the ink is still wet will help it spread some more. You can also do this by blowing into a straw.
2. Once the ink has dried look at it. What do you see? Using a black ink pen draw the first thing you think of.
There is no wrong way to do this project. Another idea is to have each student draw on someone else's inkblot.
