Repair of exterior cinder block house in Florida

Before painting the exterior of my house, I need to repair cracks in the cinder block around windows and planters on my house. What can I use that is easy? I'm a beginner at this.

It depends on the cracks, how wide, how long and where they are located.

Usually, as preparation for painting, small cracks can be filled with exterior caulking, then covered with elastomeric paint.

There is a specific caulk for cement block located at Home depot, etc.

Thank you both for the information. I'll do a little more research before taking care of the cracks.:)
