    Wow, you see, that is why you make your own pavers or blocks, rather than pour slabs. If a paver cracks, you pour a new one for 30 cents to a dollar and it looks like nothing ever hapoened. When a slab cracks, you got a $50 repair, that is quite simply, better invested in doing it right

    If the cracks are small enough, you can use a solid concrete stain (works like paint). There are also products that go on thicker and add a texture similar to Deck Over. Otherwise, you can fill before staining. There are products that work like caulk and others work like spackle with a trowel or putty knife.

    Maybe use the concrete paint to fake a flag-stone look so the crack looks like it should be there separating the "rocks"?

    You can resurface the concrete. Sakrete or Quickcrete.
