Cracks in foundation parging

My house has some small cracks in the foundation parging. What's the best and/or easiest way to repair them? Thanks. David

If they are small cracks I wouldn't worry too much about them. Parging is cosmetic. But if they are big enough to be ugly or you simply want to repair them then you'll need to match what it was first parged with (again only cosmetic) and use that. Or you can simply use base coat stucco. Then chip out any loose material, brush off any dust or loose sand, spray it with some water and then apply the stucco with a putty knife, trowel or whatever size tool is appropriate. During the next day or two spray it lightly with water as it cures.
