    Everyday is an adjective:
    Getting up very early and geting back home very late, that's my everyday life.

    Every day is an adverbial:
    Well, I tried to relax every day, Doctor.

    Additionally, here's a quick way to remember the two:
    My everyday life is every (single) day.
    Everyday before a noun
    Every (single) day

    Is the hyphenation just a typo or can it be used? And which exactly should it be here?

    Every (single) day activities?

    or

    Everyday activities?

    I would say the second one.

    I thought I knew the difference well till I met this!

    As far as I know, it's okay to put a hyphen within every-day (everyday is just a compound, whereas every-day is a hyphenated compound, that's the difference ).
