My 6 yr old step son doesn't follow simple directions well. Does anyone know where I can find some activities or advice on how to help him develop this skill better?? I looked on-line but haven't been able to find anything helpful.

I agree with the PP. Give directions one step at a time. Once he's completed one step, then give him the next. When he gets better at that give him 2 at a time. Just keep gradually increasing the number of steps. As he learns to read you can also write down the directions. In the meantime, you can use pictures. You could even take digital pictures of him doing each step.
This is a very typical problem for young children. Unless he has other issues, this isn't any indication of a problem at all.
