"we zetten een deken in het park?" Why not?

When you 'zet' something you place it in an upright position, which you do not do with a blanket. When you put something inside something else you 'stop' it. Hope that helps.

What's the difference between 'liggen' and 'leggen'?

Moses, I was wondering the same. Maybe leggen is to lay something and liggen is when someone or thing lays on something: De kip legt een ei but de kat ligt op een deken. Hope I'm right.
