This walkway is around 12 ft long and 3 ft wide. Was needing some ideals on what to feel the cracks in and how to do it maybe. Was wanting to keep weeds from growing between them.

You should install landscape edging strips along the sides of the walk, then fill the cracks with polymeric sand. Any home improvement store with a lawn and garden department will have these materials, and installation is very simple to do yourself.

Eelyram is right. Polymeric sand comes in different "mixes" based on joint width so measure the average width of the joints to make sure you get the right type.

How many pound of polymeric sand do you think would take care of this"?

Over the top of landscaping fabric would've been a nice addition, too. However I wouldn't undo your hard work. Are you buying the sand in Kg or Lbs?

Just a quick FYI. That type of sand is great for keeping the weeds out but if you have any type of ants they will chew through it make their little houses which leave gaps and then they being in "food" weed seeds and then here come the weeds all over again! Frustrating little insects. Think I would try to sprinkle some dry granular pesticide in the cracks before I put the sand in just to deter the ants for a little while.
