Anyone use a kiddie trailer with a trike?

I bought a trailer for my daughter to accompany me in on my rides, but for the life of me, I can't figure out how or where I would attach it to the trike. Any thoughts?

I am trying to get a similar set up (except for 3 kids)... so I hit the web and after a bit of searching I found a guy over in the UK who already worked out a couple of the hitch glitches... here's the link (photos and graphics included which really help): https://www.tibsnjoan.co.uk/anthro/trailerboom.html

Depends on the trailer and the trike! Burley offers an "alternative hitch": https://www.rei.com/product/671711 which replaces the QR skewer on the trike. It'll work on anything with a QR rear wheel.

If the kid's big enough, here's a trail-a-bike attached to a trike:
