Can Noun phrases include commas?

Example:

A star for each Kid attending the classes Math, English and History.

Commas are perfectly fine in noun phrases.

However, this version is not very natural. Better variations include moving classes to the end and leaving it out altogether:

a star for each kid attending the Math, English and History classes
a star for each kid attending Math, English and History

Also, the above implies that only those children who attend all three will get a star. If what's meant is children who attend any of them, then it should be or rather than and.

Finally note that what's given in the question is not an actual sentence—there is no verb. Which is why I didn't punctuate my examples with a capital letter or period.
