Traditional children's games on Java in the early 20th century have been documented in several texts, one of which was initiated by JL Moens. Almost all of the games described in the text of HL Moens are closely related to the environment in Java at that time, especially in Yogyakarta. One game that is described is the game Nini Towong. The condition of spiritualism and the education system in Java at that time could still provide space for Nini Towong to attend in the midst of the lives of children in Java. In contrast to the present situation where Nini Towong game became a very difficult to find. This research discusses Moens's writing about the game Nini Towong related to the environmental factors encountered. In the end we can find out that this magical game Nini Towong is loaded with environmental teaching and recognition.
